China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Sus­pected ex­trem­ists freed 93 pris­on­ers dur­ing an at­tack on a jail in the cen­tral Mali town of Niono early on Tues­day, of­fi­cials said. The prison break was the sec­ond of its kind in re­cent weeks in Mali, where mil­i­tant groups based in the desert north have ex­tended their cam­paign into cen­tral and south­ern re­gions, com­pli­cat­ing in­ter­na­tional ef­forts at peace. It was not im­me­di­ately clear who was be­hind the at­tack.
